The Kennedy Center brings the world premiere of “From the Mouths of Monsters” to Herndon High School.
The Kennedy Center brings the world premiere of “From the Mouths of Monsters” to Herndon High School. This theatrical work is commissioned by Idris Goodwin, directed by Douglas Irvine, inspired by Mary Shelley’s classic book “Frankenstein,” which celebrates 200 years in 2018.
Teenager Michelle struggles to find the confidence to speak. A mysterious doctor gives her a mask to help, but the gift possesses supernatural powers that cause her to give words amazing power — and also the potential to cause terrible harm.
For the book’s upcoming special anniversary, award-winning playwright and BreakBeat poet Idris Goodwin, along with director Douglas Irvine (the Kennedy Center’s presentations of “Jason and the Argonauts” and “The Adventures of Robin Hood”), have created a two-actor play that examines the power of words … and those who wield them. It is most appropriate for students in grades 7-12.
Performances are Friday, March 17 at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, March 18 at 2 and 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 19 at 2 p.m. at the Herndon High School Auditorium, (enter the school through Door #6), 700 Bennett Street. Herndon.
